From the Desk of the President; 

Since 1948 I have been fortunate enough to have participated in all but three of the academic openings 
of your college, Gulf Park. It is natural that we tend to compare the strengths and weaknesses of the first 
and second year students from year to year. 

Questions which always concern us are: 1) What is the caliber of our faculty? 2) How well will our 
students measure up academically, socially, physically, spiritually? 3) How cooperative is the administration 
in aiding the faculty and student body to move rapidly toward excellence ? 4) What is the image of the college 
in the field and in the local communities? I shall attempt to answer these questions as I view them at 
this time of year for the classes of '68 and '69. 

The faculty of Gulf Park this year is by far the best that we have seen in my tenure with the college. 
The majority of the instructors have work beyond the master's degree and over one-fourth are presently 
engaged in additional graduate study. As always there is excellent rapport between the student and her 
teacher. Gulf Park is one of only a few institutions in our nation with a 1-10 faculty-student ratio. 

The student body this year has been carefully selected. The elements considered in this selection are: 
1) high school record 2) test scores 3) rank in class 4) personal references. We feel that this year's soph- 
omore and freshmen classes are the best that we have seen since 1948. The sophomores have attempted to 
live according to our creed of friendship and to exemplify our motto, Non Nobis Solum, Not For Ourselves 
Alone. The freshman class seems to have accepted the outstretched hand of friendship, and they are pass- 
ing it on. 

The administration feels fortunate in being asked by the faculty and student body to act as advisors. 
We appreciate deeply the keen concern that most of the students have for the reputation of their school 
and the governing which is being advanced. When the administration is freed from minor problems of disci- 
pline and "housekeeping," it can devote its time to long range planning to make your institution superior 
in every aspect. 

The image of the college is being enhanced in the community at large. Student groups from the 
speech, music, physical education, secretarial science, home economics and art departments have given pro- 
grams off campus. We want this to continue and expand. The world must be our classroom. 

The above brief evaluation may tend to appear that I am boastful. Those of you who have known me 
will realize that this is not true. My training in the area of science forces me to be objective. No one per- 
son could have possibly brought about the changes in Gulf Park which we have seen. Teamwork is essen- 
tial to win any game or aim. The cooperation which we have received has been most gratifying and re- 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Board of Trustees, my fellow ad- 
ministrators, the faculty, the student body and the alumnae for the fine job which they have done thus 
far this year. With continued help this will be our finest year. 


Reflections On Being a Sophomore: 

A freshman must envy the sophomore who can return to school knowing her roommate and accepting 
as routine the many confusing aspects of college life. Indeed, friendships and experience are the rewards 
of one year; and these help to change one's outlook during the second year at Gulf Park. 

With "the situation under control," some of the doubts felt a year before begin to melt away. They 
are replaced by a feeling of belonging and a desire to contribute. College, as any new environment, is a 
puzzle; but the sophomore's understanding of her purposes and the incentive to achieve them make once- 
discordant angels mesh to form a meaningful picture. 

A sophomore, who once challenged the importance of knowing facts from a textbook, suddenly finds 
herself actually enjoying her classes. Studying may never be her favorite activity, but she begins to think 
of learning as an opportunity, not forced labor. As she discovers those subjects which interest her, she 
wants not only to answer test questions correctly, but to satisfy her own curiosity, and her courses take on 
significance as stepping stones to her goals. 

Just as academic interest is stimulated by a realization of one's purposes in college, the school be- 
comes more important to the second year girl. Because she feels a part of Gulf Park, she is more concerned 
with its welfare. Where participation once seemed aimless, a sophomore becomes more aware of the per- 
sonal and group benefits of her efforts. She finds that depression is alleviated by activity, and many busy 
sophomores wonder how they had time to be bored last year. A feeling of responsibility for the school's fu- 
ture, and a knowledge that, as a leader and a model, she can affect this future, make college attendance a 
more vital and worthwhile experience for the sophomore girl. 

As indifference moves toward interest, and apathy is awakened into enthusiasm, the loneliness of the 
first year is lost in a new involvement. Sophomores are surprised and relieved at the phenomena, and now 
feel grateful for their first year, which alone made this year possible.

On campus this year, students 
will be noticing an active Phi 
Theta Kappa. This is a national 
honorary fraternity whose pur- 
pose is to promote study and 
scholarly ideals among its mem- 
bers. To be eligible for member- 
ship in this organization a stu- 
dent must have a 3.1 accumula- 
tive average based on the work of 
two semesters, or a 3.5 average 
based on the work of one semes- 
ter. On October 26, Phi Theta 
Kappa initiated six new members, 
shown above, left to right: Teresa 
Fleming, Linda Wills, Sue Elllen 
Brandon, Elizabeth Gilmer, Carole 
Ward, and Charlotte Grist. The 
initiation was held in the library 
and was attended by honor stu- 
dents, administration, and faculty 
members. At the reception follow- 
ing. Miss Kathy Grady was host- 
ess. The new members then had 
dinner with President Sadler. 

Officers for this year have been 
elected and are as follows: Presi- 
dent, Lee Caldwell; Vice Presi- 
dent, Linda Wills; Secretary, Car- 
ole Ward; Treasurer, Sue Ellen 
Brandon; Chaplain, Pat Flanagan; 
Student Government Representa- 
tive, Teresa Fleming; and Scrap- 
book Committee, Elizabeth Gilmer, 
Charlotte Grist, and Mrs. Alice 

We hope to have an enthusias- 
tic and ambitious Phi Theta Kap- 
pa this year with many activities 
including the doughnut sales on 
Sunday mornings and Faculty Ap- 
preciation Week in the Spring. 
But the most important work of 
Phi Theta Kappa this year will be 
an Honors Study Program. This 
is a nationwide program in which 
all chapters of Phi Theta Kappa 
will participate. The culmination 
will be the Honors Institute next 
summer at Endicott College in 
Beverly, Massachusetts, to which 
our chapter of Phi Theta Kappa 
will hopefully send a representa- 
tive. The Honors Study Program 
consists of a study of American 
culture, all aspects, in one of our 
country's most formative periods, 
1800-1860. We hope to find the 
ideas and ideals which were the 
basis of accomplishments during 
this period, thereby enriching our 
own knowledge and understanding 
of ourselves and our world. The 
program will consist of private 
study, lectures, group discussions, 
recitals, and films. Hopefully all 
aspects can be tied together to 
show how all different factors 
work together to produce perma- 
nent results. This should be both 
a stimulating challenge and a re- 
warding experience for those who 
have the honor of participating.

The six sororities on campus 
began their rush parties during 
the third week of September. 
Rushees first attended coke par- 
ties where sorority members ac- 
quainted them with their songs 
and the various aspects of sorori- 
ty life. 

Theme parties followed; each 
group was in costume and the 
meeting areas were strikingly 
decorated in accordance with the 
theme. The members of Delta Al- 
pha became "The Devil's Angels," 
and a group of exotic hippies in- 
vited rushees to "Take a Trip 
with Delta Chi." Grass skirts and 
"moo-moos" were worn by the 
Gamma Psis in their own "Ha- 
waii." Kappa Chi's rushees visited 
the "Land of Oz," and it was 
"Down Bourbon Street — Mardi 
Gras Time" with the Sigma Psis. 
The setting was perfect for the 
theme, "Tneta Alpha's Brewing 
Something Up for You." 

The third and final rush party 
was a formal reception. Because 
each sorority had extended such 
genuine hospitality, rushees were 
filled with anticipation as they 
turned in their preference sheets. 
Three tense days of silence were 
ended when the bids were issued 
on October 4. 

Two days later an informal 
pledge ceremony was held, and 
the pledges received their Big 
Sisters. At the banquet after- 
wards, the pledges proudly wore 
their pledge ribbons. 

The next day these girls began 
to feel the consequences of their 
new affiliation. Overly braided 
hair, frolic in the fountain, and a 
few raw eggs characterized the 
observance of "Rat Day." Pledges 
more than proved their worth, 
and were soon able to laughing- 
ly reminisce with the actives. 

After pledge tests and stand- 
ards test were successfully passed, 
Formal Initiation was held on Oc- 
tober 12. As she pledged her loy- 
alty to her sorority, each girl re- 
ceived the sorority flower to sym- 
bolize her acceptance into the sis- 

The excitement of Rush and In- 
itiation resulted in larger sorority 
groups which could then begin 
their activities for the year. In- 
tramural sports opened with the 
volley ball tournament, and the 
sororities participated in a 
Thanksgiving drive to benefit tor- 
nado victims.

All the girls who were going to 
Pensacola Saturday for the week- 
end rose early, ate breakfast, 
caught their respective buses and 
settled down for the long drive to 
Pensacola Naval Air Station. 
There they would attend an Au- 
tumn Regimental Ball. 

After eating lunch at a Spanish 
Fort on their way there, they 
once more returned to their buses 
until their anticipated arrival. 
Their arrival was a combination 
of fear and sudden shyness with 
the girls; withdrawal into mili- 
tary stiffness for the boys and 
complete confusion for the cadets. 
It seemed that everyone's best 
laid plans were gone astray. It 
took much longer than anticipated 
to get the girls registered and 
their dates found. Therefore, they 
had very little time in which to 
prepare themselves for the ball. 
However, after many false starts, 
including little running water, 
everyone finally arrived at the 

After going through a receiv- 
ing line in which the young men 
introduced their dates to the im- 
portant officers on the base, every- 
one entered the ballroom. There 
they were served a delicious din- 
ner amid lovely fall decorations. 
An orchestra had been hired to 
provide music for ballroom danc- 
ing. All who attended danced and 
seemed to enjoy the ball thorough- 

At ten o'clock the contest for 
queen of the ball began. An emcee 
named the girls who had been 
chosen to represent each class and 
included a short history of each 
girl. The queen was announced 
about thirty mintes later. The 
judges made a very wise decision: 
the chosen queen was lovely and 
charming, the wife of a Navy of- 
ficer. More dancing followed. 

The ball ended at one o'clock 
and the girls were returned to 
their barracks. At six o'clock the 
next morning revellie sounded. 
The girls rose to dress for church 
services, and later had brunch. 
After brunch the girls either went 
with their dates to see the air- 
craft carrier, Lexington, or re- 
turned to their dorm to change 
for the beach party. 

The beach party started about 
noon with an outside barbecue and 
a live rock band inside a recrea- 
tion hall. Here the girls and their 
dates stayed until three o'clock. 
At three, all returned to the living 
quarters, exchanged addresses, and 

Soon the girls were once more 
on the buses heading back to 
Gulf Park after a wonderful week- 
end at Pensacola. 

A Scene from The Enchanted 


by Nancy Carson 

On Thursday and Friday nights, 
November 16-17, The Jet Mask- 
ers, under the direction of Miss 
Helen Picking, presented The En- 
chanted, a play by the twentieth- 
century French novelist and play- 
write, Jean Giraudoux. 

The central theme of Girau- 
doux's plays is always the same: 
a pair of opposites in conflict. 

The Enchanted is the story of 
a pretty, young woman, Isabel, 
played by Meg Gaffey, who is cap- 
tivated by thoughts of the super- 
natural. Because of her strong be- 
lief in the spirit world, she is able 
to invoke a ghost, played by Rich- 
ard Stein, to return to his earthly 
home in hopes that they, together, 
can bring the rest of the spirit 
world to earth and thus bring 
man to the realization of his true 
worth and his mission in life. Isa- 
bel's feudal attempts, however, 
are never realized. She later comes 
to the conclusion that the dead 
are but shadows and that she 
must forget the supernatural and 
devote her full' attention to this 

The Jet Maskers' profession- 
al touch in the presentation of 
The Enchanted made the play a 
real success. The entire cast gave 
a superb performance. Nels An- 
derson of the Gulf Park College 
speech department portrayed the 
Supervisor. Andy Novak from 
Jefferson Davis College gave an 

outstanding performance as the 
inspector. To complement this duo 
were Louis Hickey, the Mayor, and 
Michel Titus, the Doctor. Our own 
Gulf Park College girls, Marlain 
Wiesel, Sue Rucker, Jeannette 
Davidson, Michael Reinike, Bren- 
da Conley, Kathi Abrahamson, 
and Penny Koenig, tickled the 
audience with their little school- 
girl antics. What could have made 
the evening more complete than 
Ardis Kohlmeier and Carolyn 
Staples, who played the town's 
gossiping spinsters? Jim Bruno 
and Donald Pippin, the two exe- 
cutioners brought down the house 
with their song and dance con- 
cerning the virtues of the guillo- 

All in all, The Enchanted com- 
bining subtle humor, deep thought, 
and emotional entanglement lent 
an air of excitement and enter- 
tainment that none of us will soon 
forget. Hats off to The Jet Mask- 
ers for a job well done.

Bore IV, a delightful musical 
review, was presented by the Mu- 
sic, Dance, and Drama Depart- 
ments of Gulf Park College on Oc- 
tober 25, 26, and 27. Parents, fac- 
ulty, and students alike enjoyed 
the show. 

Short skits covering every sub- 
ject from Mati-Hari to Count 
Dracula were presented. Boys 
from nearby Keesler Air Force 
Base were in the cast. Dancing, 
singing, and "tear jerking'' drama 
were presented in succession. 

The intermissions, usually the 
dullest part of an evening, proved 
to be very, very entertaining — 
in fact almost stole the show. 
Films, especially interesting to 
the Gulf Park College students 
and faculty, were shown with our 
own faculty and administration 
starring in comic clips. Sing a- 
longs were also held during these 
interesting intermissions. The 
The audience joined in along with 
a song leader in singing "The 
Sidewalks of New York," "Mary's 
a Grand Old Name," and "Give 
My Regards to Broadway." 

The entire review was very re- 
freshing, indeed. The sets were 
great, the costumes authentic, and 
the performers gave their all to 
make this show great and suc- 
ceeded in their goal. Bore IV was 
certainly not a bore! It was a 
refreshing, entertaining produc- 
tion that was much in line with 
the Gulf Park College tradition of 
quality and greatness.

Since September the Gulf Park 
Glee Club and Keesler Male Chor- 
us have been steadily rehearsing 
for this year's Christmas concert. 
For the first time these two chor- 
uses have combined to present

ger. The Keesler Male Chorus has 
been prepared by Lieutenant Wus- 
nack and the combined chorus will 
be directed by Mr. Jimmie Capel. 
Lieutenant Art Barnes and Mr. 
Don Christmas will accompany on 
two pianos along with the percus- 
sion. Featured soloists are: Mrs. 
Ann Miller, soprano; Mrs. Donna 
Jo Barber, soprano; Mrs. Byrd 
Cassibry, contralto; Mr. Guy Mar- 
vin, tenor. 

The first performance will be 
held at Vandenberg Hall, Keesler 
Air Force Base, on Sunday, De- 
cember 10, in the afternoon. This 
will be followed by two perform- 
ances at Gulf Park Wednesday 
and Thursday nights of that week 
at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium. 
King David promises to be an out- 
standing and inspiring perform-

Gulf Park was fortunate again 
this year to have Dr. Louis Bin- 
stock as a guest speaker. Dr. Bin- 
stock, rabbi of Temple Sholom, 
North Shore, Chicago, spoke Mon- 
day evening, October 21, at 7:30 
o'clock in the college auditorium. 

Rabbi Binstock, who had recent- 
ly returned from a trip to Russia, 
spoke on the newly released me- 
moirs by the daughter of Joseph 
Stalin, Sveltlana Alliluyeva, who 
defected to the West. 

Following his talk, Dr. Binstock 
was honored with a reception in 
Hardy Hall, with the student or- 
ganization, We Moderns, in 
charge. Patrons and friends of the 
college were invited to hear the 
lecture and to the reception after- 

Dr. Binstock, a close friend of 
the late Dr. Richard G. Cox, first 
president of Gulf Park, has been 
a frequent visitor to the college 
for over 32 years. He served as a 
rabbi in New Orleans before 
going to Chicago. Dr. Binstock 
was President of the New Orleans 
Rotary Club and active in many 
civic agencies.

The Riding Department has 
many additions to be proud of this 
year in the way of trophies, rib- 
bons, and new horses. 

The excitement began at the 
Saint Martin's Horse Show in 
New Orleans the twenty-ninth of 
September. Cindy Ingram, riding 
Chico, placed first in the Pleasure 
Equitation Class. Margo Foster, 
also riding in the Pleasure Equi- 
tation, took third place riding 
Stonewall's Sparkling Jewel. Sha- 
ron Greene placed fourth in the 
Western Pleasure Equitation rid- 
ing her own horse, Elmond's Bear 

On October 14, Gwen Fleming 
and Miss Nelson placed in Mo- 
bile's Deep South Charity Horse 
Show. Gwen took third in English 
Pleasure, riding Chico, while Miss 
Nelson took third in Ladies' Three- 
Gaited Stake, riding Regal En- 

Folsom, Louisiana, set the scene 
for the Folsom Charity Horse 
Show on October 29. Here, Sharon 
Greene took first place in the 
Under Seventeen Western Plea- 
sure on Elmond's Bear Track. She 
also placed sixth in Stock Seat 
Equitation on the same horse. 
Margo Foster placed third in the 
Stock Seat Equitation on Cedar 
Heart. Kitty Jordan, riding But- 
ter Ball, took fifth in the English 
Pleasure Class. Gwen Fleming 
took sixth place in English Plea- 
sure riding Chico, and Miss Nel- 
son won second in the Adult Wes- 
tern Pleasure Class riding El- 
mond's Bear Track. 

Three welcome additions have 
been made to the stables this year. 
Hello Dolly is an eight year old 
black mare 15.2 hands high. She 
will be used to show in the Plea- 
sure Class. Chunk is the name of 
the new bay gelding 15.1 hands 
high. A new pinto mare, Sugar 
and Spice, is 14.1 hands high. She 
belongs to Mimi Hopkins and is 
being lent to the school for teach- 
ing purposes. 

Lady, an old-time favorite chest- 
nut mare, has been retired from 
our stables and now enjoys green 
pastures with the 0. T. Ruckers 
of Mandeville, Louisiana. 

Officers of the Bit and Spur 
Club are: Gwen Fleming, presi- 
dent; Kitty Jordan, vice president; 
Cheri McKee, secretary; Sally 
Sockwell, treasurer; and Susie 
Carlton, historian.

The word "Panhellenic," which 
represents the great festivals of 
the Greeks, and the feeling it im- 
plies, found its way into the week- 
end of November 11 at Gulf Park. 
Dates from Pensacola, Keesler, 
and other local areas started ar- 
riving early Saturday afternoon. 
Upon the completion of meeting 
their dates, an informal dinner 
was held for all couples on the 
back campus. 

A lovely dance was sponsored 
by all the sororities of Gulf Park 
in the college dining room a few 
hours later. The "One-way Street," 
a group of students from neigh- 
boring colleges and universities, 
played. Decorations symbolizing 
autumn and the Halloween season 
were provided by sorority mem- 
bers. Punch and hors d'oeu'vres 
were served. 

During the dance couples could 
have their pictures taken in the 
Hardy reception room. Here, 
again, a lovely scene including 
hay stacks, corn husks, gourds, 
and typical autumn leaves pro- 
vided a perfect background. 

The dance came to a close at 
midnight. Both students and fac- 
ulty agreed it was a most success- 
ful and enjoyable event. 

Many couples attended religious 
services on Sunday morning. This 
memorable weekend thus came to 
completion early Sunday after- 
noon. A similar "Panhellenic fes- 
tival" is anticipated for next vear 
at Gulf Park.

Although Hardy Hall is the 
oldest dorm on campus, it has re- 
mained the most popular. Thus 
another attraction has been added 
to encourage students to live 
there. Thanks to the parents of 
Connie Shaver and Suzanne Simp- 
son, one suite has been remodeled 
especially for the four girls occu- 
pying it on Sophomore Hall. The 
two rooms of this suite have 
everything Elizabeth Hall has and 

What is different about this 
suite? Find Connie, Suzanne, 
Mary Lou Doolin or Carol Mc- 
Innis and ask for a formal invita- 
tion to go through the suite! It is 
more elaborate than any one suite 
in Elizabeth. As for square feet, 
Hardy Hall and Elizabeth Hall 
have exactly the same amount of 
room space. The bathroom, com- 
plete with every new advance- 
ment, has space for all the girls' 
belongings. A new heating unit 
has been installed and the light- 
ing illuminates the entire suite. 

Hardy Hall was due for a little 
remodeling. Why was just one 
suite remodeled? President Sadler 
indicated that Gulf Park College 
lacks sufficient funds at the pre- 
sent time to complete the entire 
East Wing. Without the help of 
the parents, the school would not 
have gained the "new" suite. 

Too, the remodeling of this 
suite made it possible to see if the 
plans of renovation were function- 
al. An appeal is being made to 
alumnae, especially to those who 
have lived in Hardy Hall, to con- 
tribute toward the renovation of 
their old rooms. Plaques in each 
suite will indicate the donors who 
make the renovation possible. 
Several freshmen have inquired 
about the possibility of re-doing 
the suite they select to live in 
next year. This is also possible. 
The cost of remodeling an entire 
suite will run around $2800. The 
students of Gulf Park hope that 
the alumnae will be interested in 
preserving Hardy Hall.

On the morning of Sunday, Oc- 
tober 1, 1967, many excited girls 
dressed in sweatshirts, blue jeans, 
and rah-rahs, loaded on the bus- 
ses to start their first trip to 
SHIP ISLAND this year. As they 
landed on the island, all hearts 
thumped with anxiety. For the 
sophomores it was the remem- 
brance of many fond memories, 
and for the freshmen it was the 
excitement of seeing something 
new and different. 

Col. Polsgrove delivered a very 

inspiring sermon in the venerable 
fort. After the traditional lunch 
of fried chicken in the newly re- 
modeled concession building, the 
afternoon was filled with long 
walks on the beach, basking in the 
sunshine, and just plain RELAX- 

At the end of a long, exhaust- 
ing, but a completely enjoyable 
day, the sun-soaked, sand-covered 
girls returned to campus. With 
them they carried the memories 
and adventures of SHIP ISLAND.

On Friday, October 28, a group 
of ten Gulf Park students, most 
of whom were in the Retail Mer- 
chandising class, chaperoned by 
Miss Jeannette Brock, departed 
via Southern Airlines for Dallas, 
Texas, changing to Eastern Air- 
lines in New Orleans for the re- 
mainder of the flight. 

The main purpose of the trip 
was to visit the Dallas Apparel 
Mart and actually see how buyers 
purchase the merchandise they 
display and sell in their stores. 
The girls themselves went as 
buyers for stores in Gulfport. 
Some looked on expressing their 
opinions, while others actually 
bought the Spring line of fash- 
ions for the stores. Several stayed 
to see the Dupont Fashion Show 
of the Year, held on the same 
night, with the comic cartoonist, 
Al Capp, as commentator. 

This trip was filled with edu- 
cational experience and provided 
pleasure and relaxation as well. 
Points of interest that the group 
visited in Dallas were: a guided 
tour of Neiman-Marcus, North 
Park Mall, and the Dallas Apparel 
Mart. The guided tour of Neiman- 
Marcus was arranged by Mrs. 
Ann Richards Quinn, Personnel 
Director of Neiman-Marcus in 
Fort Worth. (Mrs. Quinn was 
graduated from Gulf Park in 1953. 
She served as President of the 
first Gulf Park Student Council). 

On Monday, October 30, the 
group departed from Love Field 
in Dallas via Braniff for Houston, 
Texas. Here they saw sights such 
as: the Port of Houston, the Uni- 
versity of Houston, Rice Univer- 
sity, Millionaires Row, a guided 
tour of Sakowitz Department 
Store downtown, and a behind the 
scene view of the layouts for win- 
dow displays at the Post Oak 
Shopping Center. Before the 
group departed via National Air- 
lines for their return to the cam- 
pus on November 1, they took a 
guided tour of the Astrodome, 
which is considered to be the 
"eighth wonder of the world." 

The trip to Texas was most in- 
teresting and worthwhile. Many 
thanks come from the girls that 
made the trip to President Sad- 
ler, Dean Johnson and the facul- 
ty for their approval of the trip 
and to the merchants of Gulfport 
for their help in getting the 
group into the Mart.

The American Dance Camp, un- 
der the direction of Miss Madilyn

the Samovar Art Club, sponsored 
by Miss Earle DeVries and Miss 
Laura Wilkinson. One of the 
club's first projects for this fall 
was making a tree trunk on the 
patio of the art studio into a mo- 
saic tile table. 

"We designed and made our 
own tiles, and fired them," ex- 
plained sophomore Jenny Hamil- 
ton, president of the club. She 
went on to say, "The ceramics 
students taught the other mem-

Another project was designing 
the three wooden suggestion box-

These imaginative and artistic 
girls are already making big- 
plans for an art fair and hooten- 
any to be held sometime after 
Mardi Gras. 

The design classes, too, have 
been quite busy practicing Roman 
and English lettering on mottoes 
of Benjamin Franklin and trying 


to make designs for a contest to 
be held in the spring, sponsored 
by Regis National Company in 
New York. 

The Coast Advertising Club 
sponsored a day-long workshop 
on November 10, at the Edge- 
water Gulf Hotel. The merchan- 
dising class joined the design stu- 
dents for the luncheon and lec- 
tures. The lectures were held in 
the conference room where a 
stage was set up to demonstrate 
layouts, different forms of design, 
and advertising tricks. Also shown 
were different types of type used 
to catch the eye of the audience, 
and the ten best advertisements 
of television. 

"I really enjoyed the chance of 
seeing just how they catch the at- 
tention of a person and the tricks 
they use in advertising," Jenny

Modernization has come to the 
kitchens of the Home Economics 
Department. Four brand new 
units have been installed to make 
it easier for the girls to learn 
how to cook. Now they can be in 
separate small groups working 
together without too much con- 

The United Gas Company and 
Mississippi Power Company do-

a dining table in each. There are 
wall cabinets and counter cabinets 
to store the food and utensils. The 
cabinets are pecan finish and the 
gold dust formica tops blend in to 
make an attractive place to work. 

The Foods classes had an open 
house to let others see the new 
improvements on a beautiful lab.

The weekend of October 27-29 
was the scene of many happy 
faces as parents from all over the 
country came to visit their daugh- 
ters. Parents were greeted at a 
coffee in the Hardy reception 
room on Friday afternoon. 

The evening witnessed even 
more exciting events. Parents 
Were honored with a lovely din- 
ner in the college dining room at 
which time Mr. Keith Tonkel, in- 
structor in religion and philoso- 
phy, gave a most enlightening 
and enjoyable after-dinner speech. 
Following this, Bore IV, presented 
by Jet Maskers in the Speech 
workshop, received much praise 
from both parents and students. 

Open house was held on Satur- 
day morning. Each dorm had a 
continental breakfast and gave 
parents an opportunity to visit 
their daughters' rooms. 

Highlighting the weekend was 
the visit of the astronaut, Gordon 
Cooper, his wife, and daughter, 
who are interested in Gulf Park 
for 1968. 

This delightful and successful 
weekend all too soon came to a 
close as parents started to depart 
on Sunday. 



Thursday and Friday. 
March 7 & 8, are the dates of 

the second annual alumnae reun- 
ion on the Gulf Park campus. All 
former students are cordially in- 
vited to return to share the joys 
such a reunion will afford. Al- 
though this year will feature re- 
unions for the classes of 1923, 
1928, 1933, 1938, 1943, 1948, 1953, 
1958 and 1963, we hope that every 
year in the history of Gulf Park 
will be represented. 

We extend a special invitation 
to former members of the faculty 
to return as a part of this reun- 

Last year on very short notice 
around sixty alumnae attended 
the reunion representing each de- 
cade. Around sixteen members of 
the Class of '57 returned as a 
group. They stayed together at 
the Broadwater Beach Hotel and 
had a ball! 

Further details will be mailed to 
you at a later date. Start making 
your plans now — write your 
friends to join you here. 


With Phyllis Williams Odell, 
1948-51, working to coordinate 
the group, Gulf Park alumnae in 
Colorado plan to organize. Some 
preliminary work has been done; 
and an organizational committee 
has been formed consisting of 
Judith Ferrara Ditzler, 1955-57, 
Jeanne Sackman Huskie, 1944-46, 
Lillie Wilhelm Johnson, '46, Mary- 
bea Manly Letts, '44, Nola Johns- 
ton Mitchem, '44, and Carolyn 
Thomson Torbett, '54. This com- 
mittee met with Phyllis early 
in November to lay foundational 
plans for organization. All are 
most enthusiastic and happy to 
find that there are so many Gulf 
Park girls in Colorado. They plan 
to have a large meeting in the 

Spring. President Sadler is mak- 
ing tentative plans to attend. 
Alumnae in Colorado are request- 
ed to contact Phyllis Odell, 4057

Mr. Joseph E. Gibson, former 
president of Gulf Park College, 
died on Monday, November 13, in 
a Jackson, Mississippi, hospital. 
His death came as a result of a 
cerebral hemorrhage. Funeral ser- 
vices were held at 11:00 a.m., on 
Wednesday, November 15, in the 
J. J. White Memorial Presbyter- 
ian Church in McComb, Missis-

New Orleans, where he was as- 
sociated with the Edward G. 
Schlieder Educational Foundation 
as an executive consultant. He 
was a member and served as a 
consultant for the Associated 
Consultants in Education. 

Mr. Gibson's service in the field 
of education has been varied. He 
served as Superintendent of 
Schools in McComb from 1927 to 
1936, including periods 1926-27 
and 1935-36 when he attended Co- 
lumbia University. He began his 
teaching in the summer session of 
Tulane University in 1927, and 
later became a professor of educa- 
tion there when he left McComb 
in 1936. In 1941 he became Direc- 
tor of Higher Education for the 
Louisiana State Department of 
Education and continued in this 
position until 1946. He returned to 
Tulane and was Director of Uni- 
versity Development until 1949, 
when he became President of 
Northwestern Louisiana College. 

Two years ago one of the pub- 
lic high schools in McComb was 
named in Mr. Gibson's honor. 

Mr. Gibson is survived by his 
widow, Mrs. Elise Misterfeldt Hol- 
man Gibson; two sons, Dr. Joe Al- 
len Gibson of Bradenton, Florida,

Sue Broeder Paris was featured 
in the February, 1967, issue of the 
Junior League magazine. To quote, 
"Not knowing what a package of 
dynamite card 78 was, it was 
treated with normal procedure 
(sustained transfer from Fort 
Worth — probably no longer in- 
terested in the Junior League, but 
cordially welcomed and invited to 
a party.) What arrived at that 
party was petite, blond, energetic 
sustainer Sue Paris, with a smile 
filled with gratitude and a head 
full of ideas. What she did for us 
far surpassed what we intended to 
do for her." 

Sue's visits to the Gulf Park 
campus bring us renewed enthus- 
iasm. Her third daughter, Suz- 
anne, is now a freshman on our 
campus. Her two older daughters, 
Renee and Nancy, were here in 
1962-63 and 1964-65 respectively. 

Sue's husband, Earl, is a na- 
tive Atlantan. After fourteen 
years in Fort Worth, Texas, he 
was drawn back to Atlanta to 
start his own business, Securities 
Funding Corporation. They live at 
215 Boiling Road, N. E., in Atlan- 

Coming from Webster Groves, 
Missouri, Sue attended Gulf Park 
in 1939-40. Her sister, Martha, 
was at Gulf Park in 1936-38. 

Edna Whitfield Alexander 
Mrs. Harry A. Alexander (the 
former Edna Whitfield, 1924-25), 
of Grenada, Mississippi, has con- 
tributed generously of her time 
and talents in the interest of pat- 
riotism, working through recog- 
nized organizations allied with 
outstanding pro-American, anti- 
communist groups. She has served 
as state regent of the Daughters 
of the American Revolution, NS- 
DAR chairman of national de- 
fense, and chairman of national 
Junior Assembly of the DAR, di- 
rector of education for Circuit 
Riders of Cincinnati, an anti-com- 
munist organization, and other or- 
ganizations. Recently she was the 
official guest of the Information 
Service of South Africa and was 
in the company of five American 
journalists for three weeks, trav- 
eling in all areas of this Repub- 
lic. Through interviews and ob- 
servation, she obtained a factual 
picture of the political, economic, 
patriotic, and sociological facets of 
South African life. While on the 
African continent, she made a 
good will tour into Rhodesia, con- 
tinuing into Western Europe and 
the 'British Isles before returning 
to the United States. 

Mrs. Alexander's chief interest 
in the field of patriotism has been 

an intelligent understanding and 
approach to the defense of her 
homeland against alien ideologies; 
and her chief concern, preserva- 
tion of our basic national free- 
doms for all living generations 
with emphasis on youth. Her re- 
cord of patriotic endeavor at- 
tracted the attention of the offi- 
cials of the Information of the 
Republic of South Africa, result- 
ing in her recent tour of this 
country as an official guest.

The Welcoming Committee 


by Lucy Johnson 

During the months of October 
and November our sorority girls 
started off on their first activity, 
volleyball. Many afternoons were 
spent practicing in hope of win- 
ning the tournament held Satur- 
day, November 18. 

This year in the sororities' new 
intramurals program, definite 
rules have been established to in- 
sure fair and accurate play and to 
award special letters and discs for 
the outstanding team members, 
under the supervision of Suzanne 
Simpson, student j manager. The 
individual sorority/s athletic chair- 
man receives ia&rmation regard- 
ing the coj^jlfts and relays this 
knowledgj^o the members and 
playerspBy winning such an event, 
poiai^are distributed to the three 
hignest teams, and it is the ac- 
cumulation of points which counts 
toward the Sorority of the Year.

Gulf Park freshmen were greet- 
ed with friendly smiles and help- 
ing hands as they arrived Sunday, 
September 10. The Welcoming 
Committee had placed posters in 
all the dormitories to welcome the 
new girls. After unloading boxes 
and baggage, the girls went to 
Hardy reception room to officially 
check in. 

Sunday night a buffet supper 
was held for the girls, their par- 
ents, and guests. After supper the 
girls attended a student and fac- 
uary meeting. The welcoming ad- 
dress was given by President 
Sadler, followed by the introduc- 
tion of faculty and staff members, 
by Dean Johnson. 

The next few days were spent 
in registration and student con- 
ferences. Gulf Park Day in town, 
planned for Wednesday afternoon, 
was postponed until Friday due to 
a sudden -rain storm. 

Classes met on regular schedule 
on Thursday. A formal reception 
was held Thursday evening in 
Hardy Court. Each girl was in- 
troduced to faculty members and 
people associated with Gulf Park. 
It was a treat to each student to 
see so many lovely girls beauti- 
fully attired. Following the re- 
ception, refreshments were served 
in the sunparlors of each dormi- 
tory to give students further op- 
portunity to get to know each 

On Friday, the merchants of 
Gulfport held Open House for 
Gulf Park students. Students 
found that the friendly atmos- 
phere of the campus extends into 
the entire community.
